Cold but clear bright morning. On the road at 0900. Passed through large areas of State forest then out onto the Darling Downs. Countryside impressive for its vastness, paddocks going right to the horizon in a mirage, but boringly flat and all the same.
Truckies are exciting to share the road with. Passing over double white lines in 60k roadwork speed limit zones and disappearing out of sight!!!!
Passed through Durong, Darr Creek, Jinghi, Jandowue, Jimbour (where today's photo was taken- a 300,000 acre cattle station with a magnificent house whose gardens and outbuildings including the aircraft hangar are all open to the public).
Through to Dalby then via Warrego Hwy to tonight's stopover - Jondaryan Wool Shed. Probably best described as an equivalent to Ballarat's Soverign Hill but demonstrating all aspects of past country life rather than gold mining.
Longest day we have spent on the road, around 5 hours driving, but at 70-80k you don't go anywhere fast.
